Maison Chanzy Mercurey Clos du Roy Blanc 2019

Maison Chanzy was founded by Daniel Chanzy in 1974 in Bouzeron, located in the northern part of the Côte Chalonnaise region of Burgundy. In 2013, a group of Burgundy wine lovers purchased Chanzy with a group of investors and have since added a second holding in Côte Chalonnaise and Côte de Beaune for a total of 163 acres planted.

With full control of production from vineyard to bottling, Chanzy’s impressive range spans 40 appellations in 8 villages of Côte Chalonnaise and Côte d’Or. The vineyards are farmed sustainably.

Mercurey Clos du Roy 1er Cru Blanc is one of many vineyards in Burgundy carrying the name Clos du Roy thanks to the King designating his best parcels as such. The parcel sits close to the woods and is protected from the wind with excellent exposure, providing consistent ripeness. Mercurey Clos du Roy 1er Cru Blanc is aged in 100% used 228-liter barrels for 9 months prior to bottling.

Tasting Notes

White Burgundy is typified by aromas and flavors of green apple and lemon and is defined by its structure and expression of minerality. White Burgundy vinified in stainless steel tanks will emphasize its freshness while aging in French oak barrels can lend accents of toast and vanilla.
